Shooting self in foot?

Just tried out the free Windows Live Web tools and ran across something odd.  Up front, let me state that I'm running Google Chrome on Ubuntu 10.4.

Getting an account was easy, as was accessing the main page.  However, with the default settings in Chrome, I cannot access any of the tools (Word, Excel, etc.).  The browser keeps complaning that the certificate for the web site has been revoked.  In looking at the certificate, the CRL is hosted on a Microsoft server.

Has anyone else noticed this?  Is it a new thing?

Oh, and yes, I can access the tools if I turn off CRL checking (not a good idea for the security concerned).
